Jump into Unmarked Free Motion Quilting, Full Day Workshop
Friday, March 1, 9 am - 4 pm
Robbi has only one rule about free motion quilting: the lines should be smooth. They can cross, they can wiggle, motifs shouldn’t be robotically the same, they should be smoooooth. The key to smooth is to relax and express yourself. If you can doodle you can do artful free motion quilting, "Goddess of the Last Minute" style. The supply list is short, you'll be using machine embroidery threads to work on inexpensive felt rectangles. This is a great class if you've been fearful of free motion quilting, need a bit of help getting started, or just want to learn some new tricks or designs beyond feathers! Skills learned here can be used on both sit down and longarm machines. Beginner level.
Materials List: Supplies: Sewing machine with which you are familiar. Free motion quilting foot, or darning foot. Sewing machine manual (either printed or as pdf on your phone or iPad). Sewing machine oil and small brush to clean lint out of machine. Small scissors or thread clips. Materials: Twenty precut 9" x 12" felt rectangles or whatever the store nearest you sells, bring different colors if you can. At least one small spool 40 or 50 weight machine embroidery thread, either polyester, or cotton. Bring a spool of variegated thread if you’d like to play with it too. Bring a quilt sandwich if you'd like to work on it in the afternoon, or you can continue on the pieces of felt. Sewing machine required.
